My daughter started seeing Minh when she was 14 for anxiety and depression. Over the years she has made unbelievable progress learning how to cope with these issues . Minh has given her so many tools to use when she is feeling anxious. She even took her to Starbucks to help her order her own coffee as my daughter was unable to confidently order her own food at a restaurant because she was paralyzed with anxiety . Now she is a well loved hostess at a busy restaurant where she confidently greets people all day . I have also referred several of my friends with teen girls to her and they have seen progress as well ! We are so blessed to have found her she may very well have saved my daughter.read more

Michael Borenstein is my 8 year old son’s therapist. We began therapy to help him deal with his depression and anxiety. He has made tremendous strides in the short 3 month period we have been with L&B Counseling. He now has the tools to deal with his issues and faces them head on. He honestly looks forward to his weekly meetings! ❤️❤️❤️read more

Mrs.Sade is a wonderful therapist! She has been helping my daughter for 7 months with her anxiety.It is easy for my daughter to open up to Mrs.Sade because she feels comfortable with her. She has been showing my daughter strategies to cope with her fear and anxiety. We have seen an improvement with my daughter. I recommend Mrs. Sade because she is caring, supportive and kind therapist.read more

We have been a client of Michael’s for a year, or so. We ended up moving and did the virtual call. My son enjoyed talking to him and loving on his dog, Charlotte, during the sessions. He is very understanding, patient, and kind. The waiting room is so calming, you will just about fall asleep in there. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up.. highly recommend to friends and family, if they just needed someone to talk to, even just one time.read more

We were referred to L&B Counseling by a fellow therapist as a group she trusted with children. My daughter began seeing Minh Bui at the age of 7, after medical issues with our son significantly changed our day to day life. And although we have a close relationship with her we wanted to make sure our daughter had a healthy and neutral outlet outside of us. We felt a therapist could best help us make sure we weren’t missing any signs that our daughter was having a hard time adjusting and help steer her with healthy coping strategies if so. I am a firm believer in therapy throughout life, as needed. We send our children to private lessons for athletics, art, dance, music, schooling and more but their emotional needs and their ability to cope with life’s ups and downs, is foundational to their success in all of these areas and paramount to their health and happiness throughout life. A good therapist is equivalent to a coach or teacher and should work with your child, as an individual, to help teach them healthy ways to identify and handle their personal challenges. Minh has been all of this and more for our daughter. She is knowledgeable, thorough, kind and creative in her treatments. I especially like that she identified, right away, that our daughter loves arts and crafts and used that routinely during sessions; our daughter looked forward to seeing Minh. She provided a safe place for our daughter to talk about her fears and helped implement coping strategies we still use today; strategies that will carry through her whole life. I highly recommend L&B Counseling and, in particular, Minh Bui. I know this will be our counseling “home” if and when our daughter needs it again.read more

Minh is simply the best. I don’t even know where to begin. Sometimes life takes a turn and leaves you sitting in the middle of the unexpected and you just need someone to talk to, figure things out with, and process through what situation it is your going through. Minh has been amazing and I’m super thankful that I decided to take the step and go to therapy!read more

I can’t say enough good things about L&B Counseling. A friend recommended I talk to Trent about my son after a terrible counseling session at a place my insurance recommended. Trent set us up with Michael who has been the answer to my prayers. We started off seeing Michael once a week but have reduced our sessions as my son’s behavior improved. Michael is able to speak to my son in a way that makes him want to listen and try new strategies. My son doesn’t do well sitting still for long periods so Michael will take him out to kick a ball around or shoot hoops while they talk. My son has grown to trust Michael and confide in him, even when talking about emotional issues. My son’s behavior both at home and in school have improved dramatically.read more

Profesional therapist do not share their own problematic life with their patients and then place blame on parents. Just because this particular therapist feels resentment to what happened in her life . We pay for them to give our children the tools to cope with the issues they may be having and give them strategies to be more successful. Very unprofessional and forgetful of appointments. It’s almost as if she takes the time to deal with her own troubles in life. Word of advice I would be very cautious to take my child here as they may end up getting offended and hurt by what the therapist says and feel to embarrassed to let us know the therapist stinks and makes them feel worse after each session.read more

Minh is WONDERFUL! She is so caring and truly listens to you. I have been seeing Minh for anxiety/depression and I have seen a major change in myself for the better. I am more confident, self aware, and able to use “tools” to manage and cope with my anxiety and depression. L&B has been and is extremely helpful and beneficial for me.read more

What a blessing to have found this counseling group! A friend recommended Trent for my son based on her experience there with her son. She was right. We have been coming for 2-3 months and had goals and strategies from the beginning. I love the way Trent connected with my son and used my son’s life experiences in practical ways to get him headed in a positive direction. I would highly recommend L & B Counseling. My daughter and I met with Sade as well for the art therapy group and hope to be a part of that group when available.read more

I have been seeing Michael for a little less than a year and he has been a huge help as I navigate some stressful situations. He provides tools that I can use anytime and anywhere when I’m feeling overwhelmed or anxious. I can tell he takes a genuine interest in what I’m saying and validates what I’m feeling while also challenging me to view situations differently. I’d 100% recommend seeing him. The office is really nice and scheduling is super easy online!read more

My son sees Michael Borenstein and he has helped him in so many ways. I saw my son going through some very troubling emotions and making bad choices. Michael has given him the tools for working through those emotions. My son had a very trying 4 years before we found Michael. My son now is focusing more on the positive things in his life, getting great grades in school and wants to improve himself. I am so proud of him and thankful for the help that Michael has given our family.read more

Michael has been a wonderful therapist for my 7 year old son. With Michael’s advice and knowledge, he has helped me prioritize his daily schedule into easy steps broken down like a checklist and this helps him focus better on listening and following directions. My son enjoys coming to therapy sessions and talking with Michael and doing the activities he has for him to do for that day. I am thankful for Michael and highly recommend him to anyone that may need extra help.read more

I am very very pleased with this location. My daughter sees Sade, and ever since day one, my daughter had nothing but positive things to say about her. She absolutely loves her! My daughter is always excited to speak with her. Sade is very kind and compassionate, and loves art as much as my daughter does. I guess that’s one of the reasons they connect a lot as well. Sade will go above and beyond to make sure we are pleased. We are truly grateful for her.read more
